Bones4 Swamp Troll

Looks both scary and a bit comic - wonderful skin and texture contrast! I also like the way the base completes it.

This is exactly what I aimed for. I thought about giving the fish X.X eyes, but that was to comical :p

The skin tone is spot on and I love the expression of the fish. 

Thanks!

Splendid stippling/pointillism/ drybrush work! Love the color scheme and that fish.

 

The texture on the skin made it very nice to work with. I'm personally most proud of the disgusting lumps on his back :p

Great job. I like how you carried over some of the green onto the fish to tie everything together.

I love that you noticed,  he was to blue originally,  gave him a green wash to get more swampy as he belonged there

      Still trying to cover all my basics with this classic troll design. I'm trying to get better with my basing, this time incorporating sand and some broken up wood chips.

      Now, I have a pile of unpainted stuff. Time to reduce it by some amount. I got all of these from Bones 4, but I think that the rank and file goblins are from the previous kickstarter.
      Since I didn't want to play around with the poses I started experimenting with colour choices. Some classic orange, modern green, royal violet, baby pinks, icy blue and even a grey sorcerer.
      Some other points:
      Batch painted (apart from the experiments) NMM (it really teaches you much when you do it for large amounts of figures, I really love Prussian Blue and wet blending really helps in NMM) Experimented with using Vallejo spray paint: it gets somewhat tacky when it dries for a while, but that disappears when you paint over it with acrylic paint.
      Overall I like the detail on them, but some poses could be more generic for the rank and file goblins. In my personal the large sabre goblin is the worse of, it is a fun and interesting pose, but it only works for 1 goblin. 

      Now the photos are not the best (it was getting dark when I got the time to take them. Plus I have yet to make a good photo shoot)

      Let us start with Modern Green. The right hand side goblin has one of the better NMM sabres. Currently they have a gloss varnish. 


       
      Royal Violets and Baby Pinks: Both violets and pinks work. Sadly the photo for the violets didn't come out well, so you only get a top down shot of them. 


       
      I also found an old metal miniature at my local hobby store, so I included them here. If anyone knows where it is from I would appreciate if you could tell me: 

       
      Classic Orange: Now my favourite pose from the rank and file goblins is the spear. You can rank them up and they look like a real army! And they have a pose that works for defence, retreat and attack. The photo doesn't really do them justice

       
       
      Icy Blues and Grey Sorcerer: The sorcerer is a really nice sculpt. He has a nice pet spider on his back. sadly the sun was already pretty low and all other photos didn't come out well. 


      I painted the spider as a RedBack. See a lot of them here. 

       
      Armoured Goblins: they are fun, really like those sculpts. There was another armoured goblin in Bones 4  (I previously posted him). I don't think he really fits in with these as a goblin.

      Here is my latest. LORD OF THE JUNGLE. 
      I really enjoyed this one. Great sculpt and fun to paint
      As always C&C welcomed
